LOUIS ROEDERER BRUT MILLÉSIME 2009
Reims - França
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay - of which 8% are wines made from wood (oak barrels). 16% Malolactic fermentation.
Golden yellow with a soft amber hue. Very lively and smooth effervescence, visible in all wine. The subtle bouquet, on the nose, opens gradually, revealing spring notes of fresh citrus (lemon and not lemon) combined with warm, almost smoked mineral aromas, followed by notes of slightly roasted almonds, one of the signs of aging in oak barrels . The wine is ample, energetic and initially gauzy like talc, slowly coating the palate. In the mouth it is smooth and rich, full-bodied and silky. The ending is long and persistent. The year 2012 presents the minerality of Pinot Noirs from the Verzy and Verzenay vineyards, in the far north. In 2012, the Casa's strong character was tempered with a lot of sun and softened with an exceptionally rigorous oak aging dose.
Available in 750 ml bottles.
